Occupied Jerusalem, ALRAY - More than 400 settlers have stormed the courtyards of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque since Thursday morning in consecutive groups, including ministers from the far-right Israeli government and members of the Israeli Knesset.

Former Knesset member and extremist rabbi Yehuda Glick led one of the invading groups, accompanied by the so-called "Minister of the Negev and Galilee" in the occupation government, Itzhak Vaknin, and the wife of extremist Minister of Israeli internal security, Itamar Ben Gvir, named "Ayala."


According to the Jerusalem Waqf Department, hundreds of settlers invaded Al-Aqsa Mosque and conducted provocative tours within its courtyards. They received explanations about the alleged "Temple" and performed Talmudic rituals in the area of Bab al-Rahma and near the Dome of the Rock before leaving through the Chain Gate.

Israeli occupation forces closed the Qibli Mosque in Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the early hours of the morning after evacuating worshippers and guards. They deployed their forces within the courtyards to secure the settlers' incursions ahead of the so-called "Flag March" organized by the settlers.


Israeli occupation police opened the Moroccan Gate at seven o’clock morning, allowing hundreds of settlers to invade Al-Aqsa Mosque.


The Israeli occupation authorities have tightened their military measures in Jerusalem and prevented young men from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque to perform the dawn prayer.


Israeli occupation forces forcibly expelled dozens of Jerusalemites and journalists from the vicinity of Bab al-Silsila (Chain Gate) and brutally assaulted some young men in the vicinity of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the guards stationed near Bab al-Silsila.


The settlers continue their provocative incursions in large numbers, with some of them dressed in priestly garments and barefoot, engaging in Talmudic rituals.
